  •  Sing 2 (2021):

    In “Sing” (2016) we saw the characters in a world populated by and controlled by animals, set and the conflict developed, and now it’s on to bigger and better things. The original had koala Buster Moon (voice of Matthew McConaughy) trying to save the theatre that he acquired by putting a group of interested performers together to save the day. Now, five years later, this animated feature strives to go to the next level. Buster’s theatre is a big success, but he wants more, especially after a talent scout named Suki tells him his productions are good, but not good enough to make it in the bigtime of Redshore City. Totally up for the challenge, Buster gets the old gang back together that helped his success the first time, including Rosita the pig (voice of Reese Witherspoon), porcupines Ash and Lance (voices of Scarlett Johansson and Beck Bennett), and Meena the elephant (voice of Tori Kelly). At the audition in Redshore City, demanding entertainment mogul Jimmy Crystal (voice of Bobby Cannavale) is not impressed. He wants much, much more, and only when agreeing to build the show around reclusive international rock star Clay Calloway (voice of Bono) will Mr. Crystal agree to giving Buster and his crew a shot. One problem – how does he find Clay Calloway and convince him to appear? Along the way other problems occur, the least of which that Buster is given just three weeks to put it all together. Jealousies among Buster’s performers cause personnel problems, and it appears along the way that even Mr. Crystal is not on the up and up. The music is great and it’s easy to forget that we are watching a cartoon. Kids will love the tunes and the animals, and adults will find the dialogue snappy enough to hold their interest. Rated PG.


  • Pursuit (2022):

    This action-thriller has enough twists and a few good turns to keep us focused on the challenges faced by John Calloway (John Cusak) who is a criminal of the worst sort. He is very, very smart, he is a hacker who commits crimes without remorse, and he is soon in the sights of a police detective named Mike Breslin (Jake Manley) tasked with taking him down and stopping the cyber crime spree that is crippling many organizations. Calloway is taken into custody but soon escapes, and we, as the audience are in on something that the detective does not yet know. Calloway commits his crimes at the behest of a brutal cartel boss that holds his wife Rachel hostage. If Calloway fails to do the bidding of the crime boss, Rachel will be tortured and killed. It’s interesting to see William Katt in the cast, the one-time star of television’s “Greatest American Hero,” and son of actress Barbara Hale who played Della Street on the Perry Mason television series. Rated 14A.

  • The Requin (2022):

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water! Alicia Silverstone and Canadian actor James Tupper are a young couple, Jaelyn and Kyle, who have had some trauma in their married life. After having a miscarriage, Jaelyn has gone into a serious depression and just doesn’t feel much like carrying on. Kyle does everything he can to help her, but the mental state that she is in can’t be shaken. He decides that a fresh start might help and suggests a second-honeymoon trip to an exotic oceanfront location in Vietnam. Change of scenery, change of country, change of what there is to worry about may make a difference for Jaelyn, but despite the tropical paradise, she still can’t seem to come out of her depressed state. In true horror-thriller fashion, a violent storm hits the resort, and the couple’s over-ocean-bungalow is thrown into the wild surf and is swept out to sea. Kyle’s leg is badly injured and the blood from the injury is attracting Great White Sharks that populate the area. It’s time for Jaelyn to snap out of it and help the situation. And before you think it can’t get worse, it does … it gets a lot worse. A pretty good thriller, although some of the action is very contrived. Rated 14A.

  • Love Like the Falling Petals (2022):

Pillow Talk (2022) (TV Series):

Not to be confused with the warm and fuzzy Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie from 1959, this one shares the same title and the same bedroom idea, but it is far more explicit.

The new one follows four real-life couples who play fictionalized versions of themselves as well as one set of roommates. Set entirely in bedrooms, this ten-part comedy is described in publicity releases with such terms as "raw," and with unexpected drama and intimacy. Rated 18A.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2021):

This biopic of the world created by televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker has gained new relevance since Jessica Chastain, who plays Tammy Faye Bakker, was awarded Best Performance by An Actress at last month's Screen Actors Guild Awards. The SAGs are important because the votes of one's fellow performers are all that counts towards a win, and to be chosen by a group of your peers as the best of the batch is significant. In the 1970s and '80s it appeared that everything touched by Tammy Faye and Jim (he is played here by Andrew Garfield) turned to gold. Their television empire was staggering in terms of its reach and its influence, and their theme park and merchandising had the cash rolling in relentlessly with their lives of celebrity friends, private jets, and huge mansions, as well as world travel and exotic vacations. A combination of scandalous behaviour on Jim's part, huge financial improprieties, and jealous rivals brought their world crashing down around them. The Bakker's "PTL Club" began looking like a front for devious financial dealings, Bakker himself was disgraced for a payoff to cover up an alleged rape, and ultimately ended with felony charges, a jail term, and divorce. What's he doing now that he's out of jail? Why, he's a televangelist with a new wife and a revived PTL Club. Rated 14A.
